The Tongue (Elefant Traks):
The Tongue lives life following a simple motto: "go hard or go home"....and he ain't ever at home. After forging a reputation as fierce battle MC (and representing Australia at the 'Battle 4 Supremacy' in 2005) The Tongue was signed to Sydney label Elefant Traks. His debut EP spawned two hit singles "The Punch" and "Bad Education" both which received heavy rotation on JJJ. The following year came his breakthrough debut album "Shock And Awe", and riding the success of jazzy love song "Real Thing" his tour sold out 10 shows around the nation. The following 12 months saw his reputation grow as he scored support slots for international acts such as Public Enemy, De La Soul and Dizzie Rascal. Since then The Tongue has kept himself busy in a variety of ways; appearing on the "Elefant Traks 10th Anniversary DVD", releasing two album-length mixtapes "Redux" and "The Tongue Is Dead", performing spoken words sets at the Melbourne Poetry Festival and touring as a back-up vocalist with label-mates Astronomy Class.
